September 7, 2021 | 0 Comments

Citing a number of factors including a “mandatory testing schedule received at the last minute, the need for SafeKey, positive test results and some persons not receiving their test results back in a timely manner,” the BFA has cancelled the entire Dudley Eve Trophy competition for this season.

A spokesperson said, “The Executive Council of the Bermuda Football Association having met with the Club Presidents and Secretaries on Monday, September 6th following the postponement of the Charity Cup and Dudley Eve matches on Sunday, September 5th and Monday, September 6th has decided to cancel the entire Dudley Eve Trophy competition for this season.

“The Association and its clubs recognize the tremendous pressure that was placed on football to get the season up and running in accordance with the dates communicated in the schedule as well as the conditions implemented by the Bermuda Government but due to a number of factors including mandatory testing schedule received at the last minute, the need for SafeKey, positive test results and some persons not receiving their test results back in a timely manner caused too much uncertainty and frustration that made trying to proceed unfavorable.

“The Executive Council together with all Clubs will take the coming days and weeks to continue discussing protocols and procedures to help mitigate the potential spread of the Covid-19 virus so that football can be played in the safest possible environment.

“We recognized that many in the football family will find the postponement of football frustrating and disappointing and we share these sentiments. However, we will be meeting with the Bermuda Government to chart the way forward so that everyone understands and knows the conditions under which football is going to proceed.”
